SIGMA Canada is pleased to announce the development the new MC-21 Mount Converter. SIGMA Mount Converter MC-21 allows SIGMA SA mount and SIGMA’s CANON EF mount interchangeable lens owners to use their lens investment on L-Mount camera bodies. The converter allows more freedom of choice for L-Mount cameras from SIGMA, Leica Camera and Panasonic, enhancing the extensibility of the L-Mount system.

Pricing and availability for the new MC-21 Mount Converter has not yet been announced. For further details, please contact Max Payne, Director of Marketing & Digital Strategy, at 905-513-7733 or email media@gentec-intl.com.

Effective use of lens investment

Attaching the MC-21 to your collection of SIGMA SA mount and SIGMA’s CANON EF mount compatible lenses1 allows them to be used as L-Mount system lenses, promoting the effective use of valuable lenses already owned.

1 See the list of compatible lenses below.

Fast and accurate auto focus

High precision AF photography in AF-S mode is achieved.

* Not compatible with AF-C mode.

Simple interface

Whether the mounted lens is compatible or not is instantly visible from the color and the on/off of the MC-21's built-in LED. The LED also notifies the user when a lens firmware update is available.

Lens data is pre-loaded

Running the data pre-loaded in the MC-21 for each lens by the special control program, autofocus and aperture control have been optimized. Regarding lenses to be released in the future, data for operating these lenses via the MC-21 will be stored in the lens. It means no firmware updates of the MC-21 will be required to use those new lenses. In addition, the MC-21 also supports correction functions of camera such as peripheral illumination, chromatic aberration of magnification, and distortion.

29 interchangeable lenses available to be used for L-Mount cameras

The MC-21 increases the number of interchangeable lenses manufactured by SIGMA that can be used with the L-Mount system by 29 lenses. Compatible with the autocrop function, mounting APS-C size image circle DC lenses to a camera body equipped with a 35mm full size sensor still allows immediate use for shooting.
